Waking Up from the COVID-19 Pandemic

Starting in June, New York and New Jersey are gradually opening up after the shut down during the COVID-19 Pandemic. On recovering from the pandemic, we encourage everyone to go outdoors to get inspiration from the Nature. Stretch our legs and breath in fresh air. However we are cautious that the pandemic is not completely gone yet. We will follow the guidelines from the authorities for the restricted use of the park facilities and hiking trails. We will NOT have organized hikes as before. CMCNY will post some recommendated hikes for people to sign up. CMCNY will provide information for those who have signed up, to come to the hikes on their own. Everyone is reminded that social distancing is still a MUST on the hiking trail.
